Is there a phrase or word that means "put on too much makeup"? I remember there was a phrase and I think it had the word "paste" in it, but I don't remember it. I also think there was a verb that pretty much meant the same thing, but I don't remember it either. Can anyone help me out?
“You look like a clown” is a pretty offensive thing that’s said when someone’s wearing too much makeup. If you’ve ever seen a clown, it’s pretty obvious why people say this: clowns often wear face paint that that looks like poorly done makeup.
